Xbox Game Pass Confirmed Games January 2023

There are only a few games confirmed so far for January 2023, but we expect more to be coming. The full list is as follows:

  • Persona 3 Portable – January 19 (Console, PC, Cloud)
  • Persona 4 Golden – January 19 (Console, PC, Cloud)
  • Monster Hunter Rise - January 20 (Console, PC, Cloud)
  • Age Of Empires 2: Definitive Edition – January 31 (Console, Cloud)
  • Inkulinati - January 31 (Console, TBD)
  • Roboquest – January TBA (Console)

The full lineup will be revealed in early January, but we expect more to be announced mid-month as well so watch this space for any updates. There are also plenty of games confirmed for 2023 but TBA on actual release date, so it's possible we see some of those sooner rather than later.

Games leaving Xbox Game Pass in January 2023

No games have been announced to be leaving Xbox Game Pass just yet, but that's not too surprising. We normally get around two weeks' notice before a game leaves, and January is still a while away.

That said, games normally appear on a yearly cycle, so here's a list of games added last January that are yet to be renewed. This is not an exhaustive list, and many could yet remain:

  • Injustice 2 (Console, PC, Cloud)
  • Neoverse (PC)
  • Donut County (Console, PC, Cloud)
  • Gorogoa (Console, PC, Cloud)
  • Olija (Console, PC, Cloud)
  • The Pedestrian (Console, PC, Cloud)
  • Embr (Console, PC, Cloud)
  • Outer Wilds (Console, PC, Cloud)
  • Spelunky 2 (Console, PC)
  • The Anacrusis (Console, PC, Cloud)
  • Nobody Saves the World (Console, PC, Cloud)
  • Hitman Trilogy (Console, PC, Cloud)
  • Pupperazzi (Console, PC, Cloud)
  • Tom Clancy's R6 Extraction (Console, PC, Cloud)
  • Windjammers 2 (Console, PC, Cloud)
  • Taiko no Tatsujin: The Drum Master (Console, PC)

Stick around for any updates and a confirmed list of all games being added and removed from Xbox Game Pass in the new year.
